Re: USB3 up front

I just (finally) upgraded my 6 year old desktop to a new system, and having USB, preferably on the front, was something I considered a fairly high priority since I wanted to attach a backup array of external drives.

I picked up a Dell XPS8300, Core i7 2600, 12GB RAM, and it has one front and one rear USB3.0 port mixed in with the 2.0 ports (4 more 2.0 ports in front, and 4 more in back). I'm still waiting for my USB3.0 external drives to arrive to try them out on the new 3.0 port.
